We are so looking forward to the arrival of the Smithsonian traveling exhibit, "Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America", opening November 19th in our newly renovated Trailhead Museum. It captures the stories that unfold on the neighborhood fields and courts, and the underdog heroics, larger-than-life legends, fierce rivalries, and gut wrenching defeats. Competition and camaraderie are explored and shared.
The Museum will be open Thursdays through Mondays 10AM - 4PM, November 19 - January 1 excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas; open New Years Day.
The exhibit's curator says "Few aspects of American culture so colorfully and passionately celebrate the American experience as sports" and we could not agree more. Come explore with us How Sports Shape America.
